We are looking forward to it although it is way off in 2024.  We try to book cruises far out but we have also found it gives us too much time to change our minds.  Given all the perks with the Retreat and the generous OBC at a price point equivalent to a Jr. Suite on an Oasis or Quantum class ship with Royal Caribbean, this voyage is going to be a keeper!

That's exactly how we felt about the Retreat with your price point comparisons and we had fccs to use on this sailing and the one for August in the Aqua class.  We booked the Beyond in Edge class April 16, 2023 in a Sunset Veranda which has the sliding glass door along with a large balcony in the back.  We have a 4 night dining package to try the specialty restaurants and then the 3 dining rooms.  (P.S. Twangster had great pictures a few months ago.)

When all was said and done it was actually cheaper than Aqua with all the onboard credit.  We had a blast.  The service was over the top everywhere from Luminae to the Retreat Lounge with full bar, snacks, and spreads in throughout the day plus a spread in our room.  They also had a designated silent disco in the retreat one evening, they had my favorite singer come in one night before dinner while we were enjoying cocktails.  Complimentary slot pull for retreat guests one afternoon and my husband got the second place money!  They had so many people that just couldn't do enough for you.  I'm sure this is a lot like Star Class which I've heard so much about. The lawn club was very beautiful and watching everyone making their glass blowing vases to shelves, bottles, pumpkins, ornaments you name it they were all beautiful because these 2 guys in charge were hands on and they all turned out very nice.  I'm very much doing this (with their help) on our 8 day in August even with 5 stops which will be the only tricky thing.  

I'm sure you will enjoy yourself very much.

We are on Edge December 2022. We love Celebrity because our very 1st cruise was on the Celebrity Zenith many years ago. The standard was set. We enjoyed our Royal sailings immensely and look forward to our 2nd B2B on Wonder in 2023, but sailing on Celebrity is always like coming HOME!!

Being on Edge during December will be great with all the holiday decorations!  We will be on Wonder in May 2022 and looking forward to it.  We also will be on Beyond in April 2023 and looking forward to checking out edge class too.  We are going on an 8 night Equinox starting this Saturday with 5 port stops!  Pretty port intensive. We are especially looking forward to the Virgin Gorda Baths excursion in the BVI's!  We have been trying to get back here to do this excursion then covid hit and fccs so finally we will do it!  We did lots of great snorkeling excursions here before so we want to see the Baths this time.  So excited to get back on the Equinox that we were just on on July 10th!  Ha!  This time in Aqua eating in Blu and having access to persian garden which my back will really love!  

Please send a few pics of the decorations if possible in December!  

Happy Cruising Everyone!

Apex:  18-25 March 2023.

First Celebrity Cruise.  We are looking forward to the new experience. 

Beyond ship obvious differences, we are curious about Diamond versus Elite status.  Also, Sky Suite versus Celebrity Suite perks.  We like the  "Celebrity Suite" layout which seems very similar to an Oasis class Grand Suite.  

We like the itineraryBelize, Cozumel,  Key West, and Grand Cayman.

5 day on Summit in December

Stopping at Cozumel and Grand Cayman. Two new ports for us so we're excited!

This will be our second cruise, first was aboard Equinox for our honeymoon in 2019. Excited to have time to ourselves. Baby is staying home with grandparents!

Correction. We're now sailing on the Apex 6 night instead.  Same departure date out of Fort Lauderdale so we didn't have to change our departure flight. Got an offer from the Blue Chip Club for a free balcony stateroom. They had a sunset veranda available so we jumped on it. Super excited to try the new edge class!
